I recently installed Mandriva 2008.0. I am trying to get Internet Connection Sharing to work with my Xbox 360. I used the "Share the Internet connections with local machines" tab in the Control Center. Using that setup, I can get the xbox working with a dynamic IP address, but if I restart my computer, my settings aren't saved and I have to start all over.

 

So then I tried using this guide:

http://www.iwpcs.co.uk/ics.html

 

The main thing I need is that the xbox's IP be dynamic and not static. with the 192.168.0.x subnet

 

This is the current info: (I made backups in case I fudged anything)

eth2: The connection where I am receiving the Internet

eth1: The connection that is sharing the Internet connection:

 

ifcfg-eth2:

 

DEVICE=eth2

BOOTPROTO=dhcp

ONBOOT=yes

MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes #This was set to no on my machine originally

RESOLV_MODS=no #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it

IPV6INIT=no #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it

IPV6TO4INIT=no #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it

DHCP_CLIENT=dhclient

NEEDHOSTNAME=no #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it

PEERDNS=yes #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it

PEERYP=yes #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it

PEERNTPD=no #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it

 

 

ifcfg-eth1:

DEVICE=eth1

BOOTPROTO=static

IPADDR=192.168.0.1

NETMASK=255.255.255.0

NETWORK=192.168.0.0

BROADCAST=192.168.0.255

ONBOOT=yes

MII_NOT_SUPPORTED=yes #This was in my file, and not in the guide so i kept it
